The Top Ten

Great movie... I'll waiting the transformer 3 dark of the moon
Trashing huge robot trucks has gotta be worth SOMETHING! I can't wait for transFARMERS (from Corner Gas)


This movie was bad, but if there is one thing that's good with it, it is the special effekts


2Jurassic Park
Yes, Transformers may have awesome and stylish visuals, but what about the film that made these elements strong enough to inspire movies like Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Star Wars Prequels E.T.C.

In my personal opinion, Jurassic Park will remain the father of recent special effects and I'm glad Steven Spielberg made it possible. Also, it gave us a more realistic approach of dinosaurs and the result was terrifying and breathtaking.


After 65 Millon Years they were back


Great visuals, especially from a film in the early 90's because it didn't have what Transformers and other recent films have today. It was just so realistic.


James cameron sacrificed so much for this movie! And it came out good!

James Cameron has done it again

Wow. The visuals are so amazing. No wonder it won best Visual effects at the Oscars. They look gorgeous.

4The Matrix
This movie is a champion in every way including visual effects


Bullet time was awesome and dynamic on so many levels.
Really other awesome effects added too.


5Star Wars
Hey, ever heard of ILM? It stands for Industrial light and magic and has done special effects to almost all big movies released after Star Wars, including harry potter, jurassic park, Indiana jones, pirates of the caribbean, avatar and hundreds others. Just name a movie, theyve done it! Without star wars special effects as we know it wouldn't exist! Think about it!
There are movies that came out in the 2000's that have inferior Special Effects to this 1977 masterpiece

6Terminator 2: Judgment Day
this piece of excellency and shear of what hollywood is
made in 1991 best before the world knew whats special and visual effects


This should be number 1. Because in 1991 is not technological days. It shows how hard to try make this movie...
This movie set a new standard of visual graphics for the movie industry. In 1991 these were top notch and can even compete in 2014!

The special effects are so real looking.

for that year it was the bomb


Amazing Effects
Insane...1979 was it? Looks more like 2020 or something! Great effects, if you watched it at that time when it was released I am sure you would have been scared to death!

We can't imagine how hard was record this movie. They didn't have ship or ocean or anything, but they recorded one of the greatest movies ever!


I just LOVE titanic. EOS.
